LAHORE – PML-N President Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has said that his party will win the election with overwhelming majority on the basis of its past performance.
Addressing the party ticket holders in Lahore on Monday, Nawaz Sharif said that the PML-N government did great work for the people and put the country on the road to progress. “People understand that it is the party capable of solving all problems.”
The masses will vote the PML-N to power on the basis of its track record and will reject the leaders who are chanting hollow slogans, he claimed.
Nawaz Sharif said the faces of those who practiced corruption during the last five years of rule in the centre are exposed to the masses and the people would reject them in elections.
He said that the mammoth turn out in the public meetings of the PML-N was a reflection of party’s victory in the next elections.
No one can stop change in the county as the masses have given verdict in favour of the PML-N, he said adding, after victory they would resume journey of progress and development from the point his government had left in 1999.
We are determined to give the nation a brighter and advancing Pakistan, he added. The meeting decided to conclude the election campaign with a big public meeting in Lahore.
Separately, addressing a delegation of party workers, Nawaz said that his party would raise the status of agriculture to industry by introducing agri-corporate culture for the betterment of small farmers.
He said that his government would ensure availability of seeds, fertilizers and pesticides at cheap rates and allocate 50 percent loans to small farmers wherein women would be given preference. He said that after coming into power, his government would build new water reservoirs and expand the availability of water for irrigation. He vowed to bring more land into cultivation and distribute it among peasants.
Meanwhile, the PML-N Young Lawyers Forum has worked out a strategy to counter pre-poll polling-day rigging.
Barrister Sharjeel Adnan Sheikh, chief organiser of the forum and Sardar Kaleem Ilyas, chairman of its organising committee, called on Maryam Nawaz on Monday and gave a briefing on their strategy to check the rigging.
They said that the forum has constituted teams of young lawyers for each constituency across Pakistan to prevent rigging and any foul play on the day of polling.
They will provide legal assistance to the candidates as well as their polling agents in case of any illegality by their rivals. They said that the forum has also devised training program for party polling agents.
